Default Re: Rank the following players..

Shawn Marion-Was a key defensive player during the Suns years, hell really their only one outside of Raja. Was a top ten player a couple years, and was a solid contributor to Dallas ring.

Sheed-Wasted potential. He never wanted to be the lead guy he could/should have been. Was really only focused for a handful of years, but those years put him above the rest.

Finley-20 points per game scorer, who aged badly. Was a pretty good guy for the Spurs last title. helped defensively, and was a nice option for Duncan to pass out too.

Stackhouse-Like Finley aged TERRIBLY. and single-handidly shot Dallas out of a title in 06.(not the sole reason they lost but a big part) Solid scorer in his hay day.

Kukoc-You could put him higher than Stackhouse, and I'm tempted too. He was a key guy for the Bulls second threepeat. If the defense was containing Pippen/Jordan for stretches Kukoc could get 20 a game on terrific efficiency if they needed him too. Won more titles than the other guys so that's something. He knew how to win.

- Rasheed Wallace - Best defender out of this group in his prime and even past his prime, could do it all except he wasn't the best defender and of course could've kept his mouth shut more.

- Shawn Marion - Great defender, in his prime he put up some great stats on some great teams that underachieved unfortunately. Now that he has a chip under his belt as a starter his player profile looks much better now.

- Jerry Stackhouse - Very underrated, one season averaged 29.8 PPG, wasn't necessarily a winner in his best season .. but still 29.8 PPG isn't that easy to accomplish. And nobody would probably guess that he averaged 30 PPG once in his career.

- Michael Finley - Great shooter, averaged 20 PPG + for 4 straight seasons at one point. A pretty great all around player. Won a chip, not as a key bench player for the Spurs in 07.

- Toni Kukoc - I find him pretty overrated to be honest, he was a weak defender and rebounder (7.0 is most he averaged and that was only for half a season) , injury riddled a lot throughout his career as well. Still a good complement to the Jordan/Pippen teams.

Prime
Jerry Stackhouse- he averaged just under 30 a night
Shawn Marion- one of the best two way players in the league. 20/10 on good shooting
Michael Finley- good scorer
Rasheed Wallace- not quite as good as Finley on the offensive end and never flashy, but he was good
Toni Kukoc- a tier below the others


Career
Rasheed Wallace- best longevity of those on the list
Shawn Marion- even he's dropped off since his Phoenix days, he's still effective
Michael Finley- had good years and same situation as Stack, but effective for a bit longer
Jerry Stackhouse- similar to Finley, but he fell significantly after 2003
Toni Kukoc- same as above
